Sen. Greg Albritton at the Alabama Statehouse in Montgomery, Ala., on Wednesday March 3, 2021.

The Alabama Senate Thursday approved a General Fund budget with pay raises for state employees; mostly level funding, and very little debate. 

“The biggest difference I can tell you between this year budget and last year’s budget is: not much,” said Sen. Greg Albritton, R-Atmore.

The House late on Thursday voted to send the bill to conference committee. House Ways and Means Committee chair Steve Clouse, R-Ozark, said that there were unspecified issues with the budget, though he said they were not “earth-shattering.”

“It’s the usual things that we face every year,” House Speaker Mac McCutcheon, R-Monrovia, said after the House adjourned. “The Senate made some changes on some appropriations and the numbers were a little different and they want to come back together and work those out.”
